The New Zero

 

  • When Jason Kehl FA’d his ultra-modern v13 test piece, “The New Zero,” in Southern Illinois, it marked a new level for Jason and a new benchmark for technical climbing.

    Inspired by this commitment to pushing boundaries, The New Zero was born. A new performance benchmark for So iLL shoes and for your climbing.

    The New Zero boasts the performance of a sensitive slipper with the stability of a strapped shoe. The softest, highest performing shoe in our line. The New Zero performs on steep overhanging bouldering as well as the smallest of smears. Designed for advanced and elite climbers, The New Zero allows for full sensitivity to nuanced footholds and technical bouldering demands.

    We suggest guys order a half size up from street shoe size to give a tight performance fit and ladies order one size down from street shoe size for a tight performance fit.

Super soft and sticky!

The New Zero are super comfortable shoes! They seriously feel like cozy bedroom slippers. The rubber on these is really soft which makes for an extremely sensitive shoe. Almost sent the proj in the summer with these pups!

LOVE!

These shoes are wonderful! They hug my feet and are moderately soft, which I generally prefer over a stiff shoe. Because of their flexibility, they are great for standing on volumes. I think they are a good all around shoes, but I wear them indoors more then outdoors. For outdoors, they are great for techy vert, but I prefer a bit stiffer shoe like the Free Range for overhanging outdoor climbs.

So grippy

This is my first pair of aggressive downturned shoes, so it's taking a bit to get used to. They're very snug but not entirely uncomfortable. The difference these make on overhung walls is incredible. They're also amazing at grabbing onto the smallest of foot chips. They're also really nice aesthetically. They don't look crazy ugly like most climbing shoes. I would definitely recommend giving them a try.

Nailed it!

The New Zeros scream comfort. I got them as a gift for bouldering and it’s amazing! I would recommend these to anyone that seriously loves climbing! They changed everything

Perfectly Soft


The synthetic vegan upper fits like a slipper, and the fabric is normally used on the inside of durable work boots in the footwear industry. For a shoe at this level, it is incredibly comfortable. The thread we use for the upper is specially made in the southeast as one of the softest threads in the world, and cannot be felt in the toe box. This shoe is sensitive and every detail matters when performing at a high level.

No Hot Spots


Dark Matter toe rubber meets the rand by butting up together, with no overlapping. This is incredibly hard to do in production and provides no hot spots.


DARK MATTER RUBBER


The New Zero is coated in "Dark Matter" rubber, part of the "UnParallel Rubber" family, a sticky outsole rubber originally formulated for the United States Navy Seals to ensure security in foot placement during approaches. It's the stickiest rubber you will experience.
